International firm Dentons has announced the expansion of its South African operation with the opening of an office in Johannesburg to complement its existing Cape Town location.

The firm first entered the country in April 2014 through a merger with local law firm KapdiTwala. It says this expansion will develop its practice not only within South Africa but also within the wider Southern Africa region as well.

The expansion to a second office represents what appears to be a continued policy of expansion globally following the announcement of the merger between Dentons and Dacheng Law Offices in January.
